I qualified in 1990 and have practiced orthopaedic surgery for over 18 years. I have worked in the Spinal Surgery Unit in Cardiff and in the famous Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry. I have completed a Spinal Surgical Fellowship in the world renowned Centre for Spinal Surgery in Nottingham and was a Visiting Spinal Fellow in Inselspital, Bern in Switzerland.
He routinely performs various spinal operations including lumbar decompression and disc surgery, cervical and lumbar fusion, disc replacement, motion preserving spinal surgery, fixation of spinal fractures and spinal injections.
